Why is my two year old calling me by my first name?She never has before and I dont think she has been around anyone in the last few days that even calls me that.

We never went through that. Instead, we had to deal with our kids calling us "Bay", which is what my husband and I call each other...hahaha!

damn it as moms we deserve that name MOM! all those months of taking care of baby in belly, then hours n hours of pain, the push, the recovery. everytime she does it, stop her, she'll get it!

Our son has called us by our first names on occasion since he was able to talk. We answer him just like if he said Mom or Dad. I don't ever say "My name is not Tahra, my name is Mom" because if he ever gets seperated from me I want him to be able to tell someone my name.

Kids go through that stage. Eventually they switch back. I never ignored my kids when they used first name. Honestly it never bothered me but they were over the "new knowledge" quick.

I understand this but she knows my name so I would prefer if she called me mom.Im 30 and I rarely call my mom by her first name.

My 4 yr old went thru that. She would call me by my first name or by my nic name Midge. Cus that what her dad calls me. Its a faze. It makes them feel grown up. She'll go back to calling u mom or mommy.

I couldn't care less what my baby calls me as long as he shows respect. I don't call him son everytime I call him so why be so stuck on the title? I am his mom he knows that. He is my son and I know that. He can call me chocolate if he shows proper behavior.
